of the globe. water pollution is not helping the situation, either. nor is climate change -- certain regions are literally trying out. many countries are introducing desalination systems and drip irrigation, but these solutions are of little use to the world's poor, for home water scarcity is becoming an increasingly pressing problem. >> the united nations says access to clean drinking water is a human right. but that right is not insured everywhere, especially in countries where water is a scarce resource. >> you would think that countries such as germany with abundant amounts of water would have no problems, but they do when accessibility becomes a business. >> the berlin water table citizens group is rehearsing a song they have adapted to protest against private water companies. they have come up with a reworked version of the popular 1920's tune "veronica spring has come." in a thinly veiled stand at the french water company they want to sound out of berlin. >> there are still private companies involved in our water supply operations here, and we have changed the song "veronica spring ha
